Anyone Can Memorize, Part 2

Since this goes right along with the theme from an earlier post this week, I thought I would share an except from our family worship reading yesterday.

"Let the more important passages of Scripture connected with the lesson [weekly Sabbath School lesson] be committed to memory, not as a task, but as a privilege.  Though at first the memory be defective, it will gain strength by exercise, so that after a time you will delight thus to treasure up the words of truth.  And the habit will prove a most valuable aid to spiritual growth."
